Carnival

Carnival
By Allie Marie

I have your word –
second to nothing.
Throw a spark
for the flame to burst and fade out.
The pavement seems to shine
in this carnival of petty crime.
Carve our names into the tree
next to the ferris wheel.
Have our palms read
and laugh away our future.
Color our skin with temporary ink
then watch it wash away.
